'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 13 Winner Is Nicole Fox

Nicole Fox has won "America's Next Top Model" cycle 13 and thus becomes the first petite model to have claimed the title. Nicole is entitled to a Seventeen magazine cover shoot and six-page spread, a spot at Wilhelmina Models and a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics.

Nicole beat Laura Kirkpatrick on the finale after completing her CoverGirl commercial smoothly and conquering the final runway. Laura stumbled a bit on the challenge because of her dyslexia. And when Nigel Barker asked her to think something emotional, Laura could not deliver it to the camera. However, Nicole wasn't exactly an obvious winner from the beginning. Jay Manuel disliked the way she read her CoverGirl commercial because she sounded like a snob.

Before the girls had to walk down the live fashion show, Tyra Banks sat down with each of them to talk about their motivation. "I have sat, like, in a bathroom stall during lunch so that, like, I can eat my food and nobody, like, will see me being alone," Nicole told Tyra. Meanwhile, Laura said that she was happy to break the thought that she couldn't make it big.

During the final runway show, the girls walked in Julia Clancy designs. Eddie Murphy was among the audience because his daughter Bria Murphy was also modeling. The eliminated girls this cycle as well as Teyona Anderson, the winner of cycle 12, were also in the show. All of them had to battle wind and rain on the runway.

During the judging panel, the judges liked Laura's walk better than Nicole's but appreciated Nicole's signature walk. Then they went through the girls' CoverGirl shoot. Nigel cheered for Laura's photo while Tyra loved Nicole's relax but confident shot. After considering Laura and Nicole's portfolios, the judges decided upon Nicole as the winner.

I love everyone on that show but their is only 2 beautiful girls. it was Laura and Nicole. I was cherring for them. they was fantastic at the modelling and at the photo shots. when I found out that they both was at the fanil end I got happy. I was really proud of them bot I was escard too. I started to thing and take a cloce look at the pictures to see and thing who will be the next top model winner. Then one day I looked at the tv and saw the show on. I started to look at the pictures that they both took and I realize that Nicole was the best because she is pretty and cool and a good model. I cheered for her a lot she won the America next top model I was proud of her when I looked at the tv and I saw she won I was so so happy that I bot the magesines and I bot the covergirl stuff and I did not use it.

Nicole deserved it. Haha. She used to be in my chem class...Beautiful girl!

i guess those who like laura - laura is not good in modelling-she is more on pa-cute thing. She is nice- but modeling is not for her - she's too attractive but i guess she'll have a good standing in being a movie artist not in modelling.

i like nicole, judges likes her too. She's so simple but wow when she modeled--so perfect-she is born to be a model. In the whole entire top model 13-she got her very best, even in simplest shoot out-she turn out to be gorgeous & what can i say - you are blessed nicole!!!congratulations!

laura is deserving to get the tittle
posted by Annetta on Sep 04, 2010 the way I wish to add that they were both pretty but Nicole is more highfashion than Laura. Nicole is also more versatile, she can be a sexy Victoria Secret model and can transform in a high couture model or and editorial model as well...
posted by Annetta on Sep 04, 2010
I am so glad Nicole won!! I also like Laura, she photographed beautiful and she was very sweet and down to earth, but she is not as elegant and unique as Nicole is.. Nicole remind me the beautiful princess from the woods in a fairytale book, or a victorian beauty so serene, delicate and elegant plus she has a slimmer and longer body in comparison to Laura, she was thicker. Congratulations to Nicole and to sweet Laura, they both were the best of the bunch!!!

I think Nicole is fabulous, so glad that she won, she has been standing out since the very first day!
posted by Lindy on Aug 09, 2010
For once they picked the wrong girl. AMNTM is also a spokes person for other young women. Laura could do this easy plus have great photos. Nichole can't carry either one. Laura is the winner to me.

i think Laura should of won because she was so sweet and nice. But nicole had great photos. But it doesn't matter because in cycle 3 Eva won and she is 5"6'and a half which makes Eva the first black and petite model to win america's next top model.

I thought Laura really should of won, her photos throughout the show have been the best, and she is the beter cover girl by far. she looked fab on the catwalk on the final show. I hope she becomes a successful model and this is not the last we hear of her. Good Luck Laura x

I really like Nicole, I had a feeling from the very start that she would win! I really liked Lauras personality but Nicole can take extremely good picturess & Laura wasn't high fashion. I think Nicole has good personality, even though shes a little wierd. I wouldn't of cared if Laura won anyway, the two were my fav throughout the whole thing :)
posted by __ on Mar 01, 2010
I'm not impressed that nicole won. she didnt put any efford into it at all. no offence to her but she doesnt look like a modle, and she will get eaten up in the modeling world. shes to wierd to actualy make it out there. she will easyily crash and burn.

OMG I am so happy that Nicole won. I was rooting for her from the start. She has a fantastic, true personality. The only one of the bunch who never trash talked anybody else and concentrated solely on learning modelling skills and applying them consistently. She is a wonderful young woman and I can't wait to see her modelling career develop. Congratulations Nicole!!

She a natural model, very very good,they make a right decision
posted by Leanne on Nov 21, 2009
I agree with Holly, antm finally got it right! Having a great personality doesn't mean a thing in modelling world..naomi campbell is crazy and kate moss is hardly a great role model, and how much success did they have? Nicole has what it takes to get a lot of print work, but let's face it, what's the chanceof any of these antm contestants ever becoming a supermodel?

I am so happy that Nicole won and am even more happy that a petite model is representing all the short girls around the world for the whole cycle I was rooting for both Nicole and Laura so when both girls stomped the runway I knew that one of my favourite girls would go home but when they announced Nicole I couldn't have been more happier :) So congratulations Nicole!!! And I know we will be seeing that cute country girl Laura rocking the runway again!! Go laura and nicole!!!!

laura is so beautiful and real and her personality just stands out. she will go far no matter what the outcome of antm was. nicole is the most plain girl i have ever seen on there, personality wise, and i just don't like her. laura is the best and she rocks. i wish her the best and i hope she goes very far.

posted by Cat on Nov 20, 2009
I am so glad Nicole won. I think she really deserved it. I was rooting for her for two main reasons. 1) She is an extremely talented model. She takes amazing photos consistently and I think she will go far. And 2) I personally, can really relate to her. She is a redhead, like myself. We also have similar personalities. I am quiet and shy and a bit awkward sometimes, but that's okay. For anyone who says Nicole has no personality, I find that comment untrue and slightly offensive. Just because you are not the most outgoing person doesn't mean you have no personality. I do think Laura is a great girl with lots of talent and an inspiring story, but I am very happy with the outcome of this cycle. Way to go Nicole! :)

i'm a little surprised that people thought laura should have won....she never finished at the top of the pack ever from week to week. her pics are good (don't get me wrong), but nicole's were consistently fierce...and every guest judge said so, as well! No one before this week every thought Laura would even be in the finals and now based on nicole's less than fab walk and supposedly zero personality (that is such crap that is propogated by the editing team of atnm)people think laura should have won? how silly...people are really fickle. that said, i hear laura and i think she is going to take the world by storm (perhaps as an actress if she can get over her nerves.

Nicole is the winner!! I love her pictures! She is shy, soooo what?! That doesn't mean she hasn't got personality. She had the best photos in the whole competition and her pronuntiation on the comercial was PERFECT. And most important thing, she had given 100% every single day. CONGRATULATIONS
posted by arianne on Nov 19, 2009
it's been a looong time since the winner of antm wasn't the complete opposite of who should've won the minute i saw nicole on the show, her look stood out to me when it came to laura, i could only remember her for having a really thick country accent when it comes down to modeling, a look that stands out, that's memorable, is what the industry really needs, and by nicole being a petite model, she was (besides erin) she only one who would be able to make it
posted by steph on Nov 19, 2009
i find it really strange how this cycle was for petite models, yet Nicole wasn't even the shortest model to win america's next top model, Eva is ! They should've given Laura the win because it would've given her a better chance of having a modelling career, just because she is so short whereas Nicole isn't really petite.
posted by shirley on Nov 19, 2009
i absolutely agree with pashmina, and even though he/she mad excellent points, Laura had the sympathy vote, and that's why everyone's so dissapointed. I was rooting for Jennifer until this last episode where i changed to Laura.
posted by True on Nov 19, 2009
I think this show is such a Hypocrite!!!!! Don't get me wrong, it is a very entertaining show but if you really think about it on every judging panel they gave all the girl the constructive criticism and that fine. The girls are doing as what they are told but then again when they does it they still get criticize by the judge and BS about it. What happen to Tyra saying about model needs to have personality! personality! and personalities! and now look at Nicole, not a damn personality shown all through out the show. I am not saying I like Nicole or Laura, I just think this show is all BS!

Laura was so plain and then they took her picture and she was a supermodel. She reminded me so much of a young Rachel Hunter. I adored her and so did everyone. I believe she lost because of her hillbilly accent - I truly do. Nicole was good to though. I thought overall this year they had the prettiest girls.
posted by neutral on Nov 19, 2009
I loved both girls but if we were to put ourselves in Nicole's shoes, she wants to break out of her shy personality as well, but our upbringing plays a part, and it's not as easy as snapping ur fingers and ta-da! u are changed! Nicole has changed much since the show started. But I gotta say that Laura's personality and the joy she brings is just so infectious! As Tyra said, America will love Laura and Nicole will be a high fashion model. May they both go far despite being petite!!! =)

Americas Next Short Model... hehe btw Kudos to Nicole! I hope she'll stay humble even after all this success... and keep working on that runaway walk & dance ^o^ Other than that she roXs infront of the camera!! I love her from day 1!

posted by peggyb on Nov 19, 2009
I wanted Laura to win but what really bothered me was that Tyra made it so freakin' obvious that she was all about nicole in panel. That's what pissed me off. And I thought Nicole's walk was hideous and annoying -- clunky and unfeminine -- not "signature" and, then I wonder how much of this "poor shy me" routin was an act? Do we ever really know these people?
posted by Anonymous on Nov 19, 2009
Nicole definitely deserved to win. True, Laura was more outgoing, but Nicole was a better model. Remember she won the 'go-see' challenge? She is definitely more marketeable both in the US & Overseas, she is more talented & has a personality!!!! so, people need to stop saying she doesnt. There are diffrernt types of personalities in this world. My heart goes out to Laura though, she is also a good model & will be successful!. Peace*

Oh give me a break Seju. Nicole is the quietest person in her high school. Who can she talks shit with? a wall? or the little insect she was saving. I don't believe Nicole would ever talk shit about Laura. whatever, Nicole won, and she obviously is going to be a high fashion top model in future, while I don't see laura can go anywhere besides shooting for Sears catalogs and some granny magazines.

Laura should have won. Nicole is so gross and ackward. When she walked the runway I wanted to throw up. Laura has devine beauty because it is not skin deep. Her smile can penetrate my hardest alloy I've made on earth.

For ANTM 13, btw please realize this show is a competition. People always talk shit about people and if you think about it, 1 hour does not show everything. Producers can easily sway you into thinking this person is "selfish" because they talk shit and stuff. They might have just cut the parts Nicole talked shit about other people to make her seem like shes the perfect one. SO, don't hate my girl Laura! ( PS I love both girls )

I don't understand why people think that having a personality means u have to bubbly or loud or outspoken. Nicole has personality. So she's chill and a little quiet but u remember her. I love laura. But it think in terms of talent and looks, nicole got it better.

I was ecstatic to hear that Nicole had won. While Laura worked hard, had amazing photos, and an endearing personality, Nicole was the more talented model, had the biggest transformation, and was always at the top of the pack. She truly deserved to be ANTM

she may not have the best personality, but she has the TALENT! look at her photos? i mean come on, she is high-fashionably beautiful! I am really happy she won! :))

ANTM may have chosen Nicole to be America's Next Top Model, however Laura (I think) was America's Most Loved Model. She is so charming, down to earth and is like a chameleon. She had so many beautiful pictures that I felt told a story whereas Nicole just looks good in clothes and is model thin. I don't hate Nicole, I'm happy she won, but my heart sank for Laura. Laura reminds me of Heidi Klum in that they are both charming and work your way into your hearts with spontaneity.

Petite models are usually NOT featured on run-ways... So Laura (who is a lovely girl)'s edge on runway isn't really a strength in the real world. Nicole on the other hand, will probably get tons of print work because she looks just damn gorgeous. If you look back, many of the guest judges were wow-ed by Nicole.
posted by ANTM 13 on Nov 18, 2009
Nicole's personality is so much better than backstabbing Laura. Nicole didn't even talk any shit about Laura from behind the camera. while Laura is all about her selfish self. I cried when Tyra announced Nicole as the winner, because I do think Laura would be a better Covergirl men's magazine model.

posted by Thymissydor on Nov 18, 2009
I think Nicole has what it takes to be a great model and she stands for a lot more than just a pertty face. Just because she wasn't as vocal as Laura or even Erin didn't change how great she was on camera and that's all that counts how they do on camera !.

Finally Tyra picked the HIGH FASHION model who will go on and work in markets like New York, Milan and London. Finally they picked talent over personality. All the past cycles, the reverse was true and where are those models now? Girls like Anya and Kata are walking the runways of Milan and doing hig fashion editorials but THEY didn't win for not having the "right" personality yet have gone on to have big careers and make a lot of money. Nicole is like America's Alice Burdeu who won Australia's Next Top Model. Alice is now a multi-millionaire top model. High fashion is finally being appreciated in ANTM.

Nicole will be the most successful model that came out of this show by far. I think in a few years we may be putting SUPER ahead of that model. She is a gem and I wish her luck on her journey. Also Laura is a good one too but she faded in Nicole's bright star.
